Mironov played in Edmonton for more than five years establishing a career high in goals (16), assists (30) and points (46) before being traded to the Chicago Blackhawks in the latter stages of the 1998-99 season.

Upon his arrival in the Windy City, Mironov continued his strong play on the Blackhawk blueline, despite missing action due to injury. After a little over three season with Chicago, Mironov was traded to the New York Rangers in January, 2003.

Aside from his appearances at the World Juniors, Mironov went on to represent his homeland at the World Championships (1996 and 2000) and the Winter Olympics (1998 and 2002).

He didn’t hold that status for long, but was a good player for a long time. Icetime numbers show that he was his team’s #1-3 defenseman from 2000 until he left the NHL in 2004. He has been a top-15 scorer among defensemen twice, and scored 307 points in 716 games. “Players” describes him as a “tremendous defenseman, strong on the man, skilled with the puck, and aggressive at both ends of the ice.” He also earned a silver medal in the 1998 Olympics and played in Salt Lake City as well.
